Conservative found to be 'cast' and will not run at Southwell this week – latest from Scott Dixon
He was a little sore yesterday morning as he was cast in the night. This is where a horse lies down too close to a wall or gate and when they get up, they can give themselves a little knock.
With Conservative, he is just a little sore, so it is not something that will keep him out of action for long. I expect he will be ok in a few days.
There are lots of all-weather fixtures over the next few weeks, including at Wolverhampton on Boxing Day. I am going to see how he is over the next few days before making a call on his participation there.
If it isn't Boxing Day, I think we will see him in action in the early new year.
Scott Dixon, Coral Racing Club Trainer
